feinstein and about gun-control. the "usa today," headline says -- what are you looking to hear from the senator and her supporters today? guest: what we will hear today is an introduction of a piece of legislation to renew the assault weapons ban, really which is to stop the sale of more than 100 assault weapons. it also protects gun owners by exempting more than 900 specific hunting and sporting weapons. i think what we will hear is not just talk about the assault weapons ban and the curbing of high magazine clips, but an understanding that there needs to be a comprehensive approach in the country now to reduce gun violence that includes assault weapons ban, assaults -- reduces the number of clips from 30 rounds to 10 rounds and high- capacity magazines and fixing the background check system. right now we have holes off about the background check system. gun owners themselves, all support insuring that everybody who purchases a gun goes through the background check system. so you will hear that as well. potentially you hear about measures to limit gun trafficking. host: what do you mak
